If we are forced to take on Okafor's contract its not the end of the world. In that case, I would not be willing to give up Gallo or Randolph however. Amare would certainly benefit from playing alongside Okafor.

We could then build a team around Paul, Gallo, Randolph, Amare, and Okafor. We would still have Felton as someone who could backup Paul or possible play in the the backcourt with him. That team would be ready to win right now and will get better and better as Gallo and Randolph grow as players.
